I think it looks great. With a great fit! It looks fantastic on you and I love the color.

You got the fitting just right and the top looks terrific on you. It is really very, very pretty. In your video review, you mention that the combination of the soft fabric and the cowl neck are a bit too figure-revealing for you, but it doesn't seem that way in your photo. Believe me, you could wear that pretty top anywhere and not be mistaken for someone trying to attract too much attention with her figure. The problems you have with sewing knits are truly not evident at all, and your skills will improve with practice in any case. One little note: I don't know what kind of sewing machine you have, but personally I would not use a Teflon foot with knits. I would choose a regular foot, a 'stretch' needle which pretty much eliminates skipped stitches on most knits, and just the slightest zigzag stitch to sew the seams.

I think your top is lovely. I watched your video and you mention skipped stitches. Here are things you can do. Use a ballpoint or stretch needle. For seams you don't do on your serger or if you don't have a coverstitch function, you should: 1) stabilize the seam (I like fusible seam tapes that have stretch, but you could use steam-a-seam or something else)--this prevents stretching out of shape over time, but also helps with skipped stitches; and 2) I recommend using a a twin-needle--it gives you the nice look and stretch of a coverstitch, and doesn't skip, if its a stretch needle. Look forward to your next review and video!
